DriveGuard Winter helps protect you against all types of punctures that are hidden on winter roads. It doesn’t matter whether an icy piece of glass slices the outside edge, or a nail poking through the snow pierces the centre tread— DriveGuard Winter tyres will help you safely continue driving for 80km at up to 80 km/h.
They are lurking on the side of the roads. They are sitting in the middle of the motorway. They are just waiting to hold you up and make your life difficult. Many types of punctures are out there, and there is one waiting on the road with your name on it. Thankfully, with Bridgestone DriveGuard tyres, there’s no reason to be stressed.
Designed for all passenger cars, the innovative Bridgestone DriveGuard technology allows you to maintain control after a puncture, and safely continue driving for 80 km at up to 80 km/h, until it’s safe to either repair or replace your tyre.
Bridgestone DriveGuard is the ideal companion for just about any situation on the road — helping you stay safe and allowing you to continue your journey without losing time and offering you peace of mind.
For Your Car
Available for most cars equipped with TPMS.
Comfort & Control
Offering comfort and outstanding control in all winter conditions with no compromise compared to conventional tyres.
Safety & Convenience
Providing you peace of mind for virtually all types of tyre damage.
Imagine what it’s like to be driving, when suddenly the tyre pressure indicator on your dashboard lights up. A few moments earlier, you drove over a nail and now your tyre is losing pressure.
Bridgestone DriveGuard tyres are specifically engineered to be able to take a puncture and keep you moving. Their supportive and tough reinforced sidewalls help ensure your mobility and support the entire weight of your car.
Thanks to our proprietary patented high-tech cooling fin design, Bridgestone DriveGuard tyres redistribute heat and friction after a puncture, so you can keep driving for 80 km even after a complete loss of air pressure.
Unlike conventional tyres, you are able to maintain vehicle control with Bridgestone DriveGuard. You can continue driving safely for 80 km at up to 80 km/h, until you reach your destination or a safe place to replace your tyre.
TPMS is an electronic feature designed to monitor the air pressure inside the tyre. The system then transmits a signal to a receiver in the car. If the pressure drops below a certain set level, then the car’s onboard display alerts the driver.
Since 1st November, 2012 all tyres made after 1st July, 2012 must show the European Tyre Label.
The European Union has developed this new provision to promote economic and ecological efficiency and ensure road safety.
Disadvantages The Tyre Label can provide an overview and give the customer more transparency, but it only covers three criteria. For an extensive evaluation of a tyre, however, far more performance characteristics are relevant. Especially in the search for suitable winter tyres the test results from different test institutions such as the ADAC are much more stringent.
We'd like to point out that it is the manufacturer that labels the tyre and provides us with this information. If you do not find the label values, either the manufacturer did not inform us of the label, or the product was manufactured before July, 2012. Before that date, tyres had not yet been required to carry a label, so in some cases it is possible to purchase a tyre without a Tyre Label.
The tyres are classified in terms of three performance characteristics:
• Fuel Efficiency (letters A to G)
• Wet Grip (letters A to G)
• External Noise
Finally, it is the driver that determines the fuel consumption. In order to reduce this over the long-term, by being careful during acceleration drivers can become more fuel-efficient and environmentally conscious.
Regularly checking tyre pressure helps to improve rolling resistance, reduces energy loss, and supports optimum adhesion in wet conditions. To reduce the risk of accidents and ensure your and the safety of other road users, always keep a reasonable distance.

The classification in terms of fuel efficiency is divided into seven classes, from the A-class (the highest) to G-class (the
lowest). A tyre in the A-class consumes 0.1 litres less at 100km than a tyre in the B-class. An essential component for fuel
efficiency is the rolling resistance or rolling friction.
Rolling resistance is the force that opposes motion. It is formed, for example, when a wheel is rolling. Rolling resistance depends not only on the geometry but also on the properties of the material.
Average Average value is between C-E. Class D is not used.
It shows how efficient the vehicle can brake on wet roads. Wet grip is an important feature especially with summer tyres.
Class A has the highest safety and the shortest braking distances. Class F has low security and the longest braking distance.
The wet grip classes are based on test driving on wet roads with a speed of approximately 80 km/h. The difference between the braking distance of the tyres is 3-5 feet per grade. E.g., the difference in braking distance between Class A and Class F are up to 18 metres.
Average The average value of the tyres is between class B-E. Class D and G is not used.
The symbol indicates the external rolling noise in decibels and as a 3 class sound wave symbol to clarify whether the tire can
keep the recommended level. External rolling noise does not correspond to tyre noise inside the compartment.
A continuous sound level above 80 decibel can cause health problems.
Three sound waves symbolize the worst results. These are the tyres that exceed the maximum limit of approval. A symbol of 2 sound waves have noise level that corresponds with the approved sound level. Tyres that are marked with 1 sound wave are over three decibel quieter than the approval.
